North Attleborough Animal Shelter Pet of the Week


Meet Nugget! He is a 6-year-old neutered male chihuahua mix and up to date on all vaccines, heartworm negative, and microchipped. He just loves being around people. In fact, he insists on being at your side no matter where you are or what you are doing. Nugget is even happier when being held. He has mastered the art of being a lap dog and being ridiculously cute at all times. He doesn’t mind other cats or dogs, as long as they are not stealing away any of his attention.

If you are interested in Nugget or any other animal at the North Attleboro Animal Shelter, please call 508-699-0128 and leave a message, or e-mail us at
